You led me into the fray
it worked out til it didn't.
We wrote letters the old way
to make sense of a distance.
Along the way we lost the night
to hear the cadence of first light divided.
You went back to your hometown and I couldn't nail down
where mine was
went back to your hometown
Among so many others
I like that you wore your mistakes
held them up til the sun met the water.
Nearing old with our distance
centered paths now adjacent
You couldn't stomach what I had to say then
and I can't picture you
or where you are now
I only live by believing
that it's still you there
within their walls
And the thought won't sleep in my heart
because the broken like to stay awake.
Quiet now, it will cut you deep down
and spill out words we use to sing.
You asked me for a chance, couldn't spare one
a silhouette's not there to bleed
you asked me for a chance, couldn't spare one
because a silhouette is more than me.
